Episode Two: Shop Lights – New Paint – MORE – Making My Dream Woodshop

The second installment of my series on making my dream woodshop. Before I got settled, I wanted to make the shop a little easier on the eyes. So I patched all the seams on the OSB walls, added a heavy texture to blend it all in, then painted the entire shop a nice light gray. Finally, I replaced my old yellow fluorescent shop lights with high intensity LED lights in a bright white 6000k color.

Let me know what you think of the process, or if you have any tips for me!
